Mumbai, April 9 (IANS) Current Bollywood flavour Priyanka Chopra is all set to attend the music release function of “Love Story 2050″, actor Harman Baweja’s debut film, and has already set aside time for it. Though Priyanka will be shooting in Miami for Tarun Mansukhani’s “Dostana”, she is taking time off from the tight schedule to pay a flying visit to Mumbai May 10 for the music release.
Seldom, if ever, has a co-star gone so much out of her way for any project.
The shooting is almost done. The last two days when Harman’s snazzy introduction was shot has just been completed. And Harman’s long-awaited debut film will be released July 4.
“We’ve all worked very hard on this film. The shooting is complete. Now begins the real struggle. The FX are comparable with anything from Hollywood, as we could see from the theatrical trailers that were released with ‘Race’,” Harry Baweja, who is producing the film, told IANS.
Earlier this month, Priyanka joined the crew in Miami a day late because she wanted to be in Mumbai when the theatrical trailer of “Love Story 2050″ was released.
Priyanka has also set aside a major chunk of dates for the film’s promotion in June.
Says Priyanka, “What’s the big deal? ‘Love Story 2050′ is as much my film as Harman’s. I’d have done just as much for any of my films. About returning for the music release, it is being worked out with Karan Johar.”
The schedule in Miami goes on till May 20. But Priyanka hopes to wrap up her work in time for the music release.
The Bawejas have quietly acknowledged her huge hand in seeing Harman’s launch acquire epic proportions.
A whole elaborate song sequence in the air with Priyanka flying on a jet singing and dancing across Mumbai’s shimmering skyline has been choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.
“This,” says an inside source, “was the least the Bawejas could do for Priyanka after all she has done for them. Harman has a couple of super-elaborate songs and dances. They felt the need for Priyanka to also make her presence felt.”
Harry said: “The song we’ve done with Priyanka has her flying on top of futuristic Mumbai. It’s something never seen before.”
